#1 Cochran Expands Footprint in Pennsylvania

MSO's acquisition of Mignogna Collision in Greensburg, Pa., boosts their total number of shops to six and marks their first entry into the Westmoreland County market.

cochran#1 Cochran announced that it has acquired Mignogna Collision in Greensburg, Pa., 35 miles east of Pittsburgh. The acquisition boosts #1 Cochran’s collision operations to six and marks the company’s first entry into the Westmoreland County market.

The 30,000-square-foot facility will continue to operate as Mignogna Collision until a rebranding occurs later this year. Founder Patsy Mignogna will remain actively involved in the business, and nearly all of the company’s 25 employees are joining #1 Cochran.

“We are extremely proud to welcome Mignogna Collision to the #1 Cochran collision repair network,” said Rob Cochran, president and CEO of #1 Cochran. “The company’s decades-long reputation for exceptional service fits perfectly with our mission to provide unequalled collision care to vehicle owners and insurance partners throughout the region.”

Mignogna, who built the 30-year-old business from a two-bay garage to the current 30-bay, full-service facility, said his decision to sell the company hinged upon finding a partner who shared his commitment to best-in-class customer service and unparalleled automotive repair.

“#1 Cochran is widely known for delivering the highest standards of quality and care to customers in every community it serves,” said Mignogna. “Equally important, it is driven by a culture of integrity, values and standards that matches our own.”

The acquisition comes on the heels of an announcement last month that #1 Cochran received approval from Cranberry Township to convert a former copper and brass fabrication facility into its first collision operation located in Butler County. Renovation of the former ThyssenKrupp Materials plant will begin this spring and is expected to be completed in the fall.

“The addition of Mignogna Collision, together with the green light we received to begin renovation on our first repair facility in Butler County, gives us even more opportunity to demonstrate why we’re the provider of choice for collision repair in every market we serve,” said Cochran.
